Gesture on Paper / Gesture in Space
Nancy Havlik’s Dance Performance Group – working with visual artist Donna McKee, directing the company in a charcoal gesture drawing workshop – explores the relationship between gesture on paper and gesture in space to dig for new movement vocabulary for a dance.
variation on residue
Inspired in part by pentimento, an underlying trace image in a painting, "residue" marks the passage of time and remnants of memories past and future, through a spare and fragile, yet richly visual and kinetic landscape.
"Variation on residue" was improvised on location, specifically for the camera, in September of 2013. It premiered at the University of Maryland's Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center as part of the Dance Faculty Concert, November 13, 14 & 16, 2014.
Dancers on Set
Dancers, Maré Hieronimus (1-2), Sharon Mansur (3-4), Hannah Whitley (5-6), and Stephanie Yezek Jolivet (7-8) – primarily captured on the set of film projects.
